A snippet from this week's "Weekly Breadth Data" update:


"Another bullish piece of information is that it only took 5 trading days (out of 10 days max) to produce a classic EMA Zweig Breadth Thrust buy signal on Friday. Since 1928, this is only the 24th time we've had such a signal though the results have been evenly mixed. But as Tom McClellan noted back on the last signal this past April: "the idea is that when there is such a signal, it is a sign that a rapid surge of money is trying to push its way through the door to get into the market, and this is a <signature> of continuing liquidity to fuel an uptrend."


In any event, as technicians we must respect this kind of information for what it may imply until proven otherwise.

Good info but my spidey sense says this one is a fade. This time actually may be different. T-Bill yields are higher now than April and I think they will go higher.

I remember low keyed Marty, sweet Marry Farrell, Liz Ann and Jacked up Elaine.

And Marty's TIME - NEWSWEEK indicator.

I just have to wonder how revenue is going to increase for a lot of companies over the next few quarters, outside of the defense industry that is? I guess P/Es can just go up even more and redefine what a high P/E is. Stock prices don't have to reflect the economy and earnings, so there's that. But a lot of startups are probably about to go kaput, that's going to have at least a little bit of a shockwave effect.


AI will change the playing field and is pretty much the biggest thing since Smartphones, but within the next year or two? Doesn't seem extremely likely.
